4. Keep Your Operating System Up to Date. Be aware of what's on your system - do regular spyware and adware scans to see exactly what's on your computer. Know your machine! You may be horrified to learn someone may be monitoring your every 'keystroke' and every 'image' you've viewed on your computer. So scan regularly and also make sure you download newest updates from your Operating System; these often contain patches or fixes for serious breaches of security of your PC.
5. Back-up Your System. If all above steps fail, nothing is foolproof, any computer that uses Internet can be hacked, so you need to back-up your important data. You can use floppy disks, CDs or use a second computer that's not connected to net just for storage or back-up of your sensitive data/programs. An inexpensive notebook computer can be used to make daily/weekly back-ups of your vital data and programs.
In conclusion, best defense against any spyware is a strong offense. Be prepared, be aware, but most of all, be battle-ready: have a system in place that will nuke these spyware agents before they even reach your computer.
